It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity. That’s a common refrain uttered many times during the summertime. The air feels heavy because it contains so much moisture. As you know, this type of air feels stifling. But things get reversed when cold air arrives and our heating system starts up. The heat your furnace or boiler generates takes a lot of the moisture out of your home environment.
When your home becomes too dry, many problems can crop up. Problems can range from dry, irritated skin and increased allergic responses. Dry indoor air, if left unchecked, can also result in physical damage to your home and furniture.
The good news is you can tackle the problem of dry indoor air with a simple solution that ensures healthy moisture levels throughout your home: a whole-house humidifier.
Connected to your heating and air conditioning unit, as well as your plumbing, a central humidifier adds water vapor to your home air via your ducts. You can then control humidity levels using your thermostat, just like the temperature.
Consider the benefits of achieving an optimum level of humidity in your home, considered to be 55%.
